Spoke 4

2 Chronicles 4 - The Four Directions

It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.

2 Chronicles 4:4

The work of God never ceases to amaze me. There are two strong links between this verse from the fourth chapter of 2 Chronicles and Spoke 4. Furthermore, the link is based on the meaning of the Number 4! Truly there is no end to the depth of God's Wisdom.

The first link is based on the theme of the Four Directions, which are listed together in one and only one verse of 2 Chronicles, which just happens to be the fourth verse of the fourth chapter, as quoted above. This corresponds to their distribution in the Bible which is greatly maximized on Spoke 4 (cf. [Spoke 4] > The Four Directions). Here is a graph representing the distribution of all occurrences of the words north, east, west, or south in the Bible:

The graph above displays the number of times any of one of the four directions is mentioned in each Book of the Bible. The pattern remains the same if we restrict the search to include only those verses that mention all four directions. There are exactly 12 such verses, four of which appear on Spoke 4:

Twleve Oxen

The Fourth Verse of the Fourth Chapter of 2 Chronicles mentions the four directions in connection with the placement of the Twelve Oxen in the Temple. To my amazement, it turns out that the phrase ("twelve oxen") [Verify] appears only in one place outside the description of the Temple in 2 Chronicles 4.4 and the parallel passage from I Kings. The astute reader should easily be able to guess where it is found. Turning to the Fourth Book, we read (Numbers 7.1f):

And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them; That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, who were the princes of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered: And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle.

We have the near KeyLink:

keyKeyLink: Twelve Oxen
P2 Chronicles( 4 ) chain PBible( 4 )

It would be a true KeyLink if we disregarded the parallel passages in I Kings.
